[movies]Mirror Odyssey
The Webb Space Telescope's giant primary mirror, arguably its most critical and difficult part, is approaching completion. The 18-segment mirror stands two stories high and is designed to best capture the infrared light Webb seeks. Follow the mirror's journey from rough ore to precisely reflective, gold-coated segments in this video, which details how the mirrors are constructed and tested.

[movies]Tonight's Sky: July 2011 Highlights
Backyard stargazers get a monthly guide to the northern hemisphere's skywatching events with "Tonight's Sky." In July, Scorpius skitters across the night, the Delta Aquarid meteor shower graces the month's end, and star cluster M22 is visible to the naked eye."Tonight's Sky" is produced by HubbleSite.org, online home of the Hubble Space Telescope. This is a recurring show, and you can find more episodes — and other astronomy videos — at HubbleSite.org.Visit Tonight's Sky on HubbleSite.http:/...

[movies]The Golden Touch: Behind the Webb
The Webb Telescope's mirrors are coated in an extremely thin film of gold. This gold layer, only a few millionths of an inch thick, enables the mirrors to best reflect the infrared light the telescope seeks. The thinner the layer, the better off the telescope will be -- every bit of weight counts when a telescope as big as Webb is being lifted into space by a rocket. Join us at Quantum Coating in New Jersey, where engineers are vaporizing gold to apply a thin, even layer to the telescope's mirro...

[movies]The MIRI Has Two Faces
The James Webb Space Telescope has multiple science instruments, but only one of them, the Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI), sees light in the mid-infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum. MIRI's design, which allows it to both take both images and obtain the scientific data known as spectra, makes it the equivalent of two instruments in one. These dual techniques allow the Webb telescope to study distant objects in greater detail than ever before...
